„Collect only very small things. Store them in a mint tin or small box.“
I have received my copy of „How to be an explorer of the world“ by keri smith a few days ago. I start my research with the Museum of small things. Once i started looking for them, i found a lot.
You are welcome to the Vernissage of the exhibition.
Entry is free.
I found this little guy on a walk with my boyfriend and we rescued him.
He lived in the pocket of my leather jacket for a while, now he spends most of his time among my colour pencils.
On the left is a button that once was part of my striped apron. The striped apron is precious to me, because it was sewn by my aunt S. whom i’ve never met. On the right is a shell from Denmarks shore. I spend most my holidays there as a child. Whenever i see those shells i remember those good times. 🙂
This exhibit, dear visitors is very special. It was part of the decoration attached to a gift i got for easter. I did not have the heart to throw the goose away. Her wings are glued together (stupid deco people, do they never think?) she would never survive on her own.
Chances are that when you are moving out of your parents home, it is the first time you will meet with the likes of exhibit A on the left. The thingys that held onto the drapes in student accomodation were even older than myself, i am certain. This is one of them.
When you are a student, you probably don’t keep a big stash of security pins. This is mine. I have used it so often. Last time at a costume party on New Years Eve.
When i was a kid, i was a sucker for girly plastic bracelets. Yes, really.I was immediately attracted to the pearl lying on the ground..
These are coins from my travels last year. I like to keep the some, as they look so foreign and interesting. One from Croatia and one from England.

and that wraps up this tour of the museum of small things.
Thank you very much for joining me today.
